Reviews:

CD-ROM Today, February 1996

"Here's an entertainment package for the 'I Love Lector' folks. Fans of Hannibal the Cannibal will probably appreciate Kozell's foray into the psychology of multiple murderers; others may find themselves reaching for the dramamine."

Multimedia World, May 1996

"Serial killers are among America's most durable and celebrated icons. Mind of a Killer attempts to downplay the sensationalism, but why try? Case studies of Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and others present shocking multimedia narratives along with options to check out confession tapes, news footage, crime scene and victim photos, maps, and courtroom video. You can also click on the encyclopedia for explantations of terms and historical context, or click on one of the FBI experts for some dull psychological blather. My chief complaint is that the title doesn't deliver enough video clips and gore. If your central attraction is graphic violence, why pull punches?"

Computer Shopper, March 1996

This CD-ROM "presents a careful, thorough, and candid examination of the subject. It covers dozens of serial killers in varying depth, their crimes, and the sociological and psychological causes behind their bizarre and deadly behavior."

"Although both the package and the jewel case bear warning labels, the only potentially objectionable content is a graphic sequence of photos depicting crime victims. Viewing this lurid section is optional, however. You can also opt to include or cancel the images during the program's installation. We didn't find the photos any more disturbing than those occasionally seen in newspapers or magazines, but we didn't find them to be particularly informative, either. In any case, young children should not be exposed to them."

"The CD also has an abundance of supplementary material on the CD, including a library of four books on serial murders and forensic science, plus a transcript of an extensive interview with Gacy. Sections on Criminology and Psychology are informative and fascinating, and a Maps module sadly reveals that there's virtually nowhere on the planet immune to the insanity of serial murder."
